VSSL products are engineered to last — not only through your adventures, but generations of adventures. That’s why we back each product we build with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Every aspect of this kit has a purpose — from the compass that doubles as an end cap to the tins that can be refilled for decades of adventures to come. No design feature has gone overlooked, so you don’t have to think twice about carrying the Ready Kit every day.
Each item in the Ready Kit has been selected for its critical, multi-use function in backcountry travel and survival. And whether this is your first or fifth survival kit, each item deepens your preparedness.
From the shatterproof glass on the oil-filled compass to the weatherproof, aircraft-grade aluminum canister, this packable VSSL is built to be refilled and carried for adventures — and generations — to come.
